6/10 Clinton Staff review, 03 February 2012
Try as I might, I'm just not overly keen on this King Creosote and Jon Hopkins album that has been lauded by everyone, everywhere it seems. I certainly can't hear the Talk Talk influences that have been bandied around. This is not at all to say its awful, Quite the opposite - its very pleasant folky music with a nice spaciousness which builds simply and surely. It just doesn't inspire, I find King Creosotes voice thin and the nautical subject matter tiresome. The flip is more accordion-led folky matter but stomping along nicely with a few subtle electronics. Nice although a conversation about the preposterousness of the packaging of the new Swans album has proven more entrancing and so the single is relegated to what it is, nice, pleasant background music.
